  • Q & A
Introduce a functional and innovative piece of art into your home. The Alvar Aalto vase has been a sensation since its inception in 1937 and now you can enjoy its simple and elegant beauty. Believed to mimic the wave-like pattern of the Finnish coastline, this organic shape has become iconic. The effect is achieved through the original mouth-blown process by Finland’s most achieved glassblowers. This fiery red commands attention and emphasizes the graceful form.

For more than 70 years, the Aalto vase, designed by Finnish architect and furniture designer Alvar Aalto, has been one of the most famous pieces of glass in history. Aalto, Finnish for “wave” created an original glass vase with wavy lines and whimsical freeform design that, to many, suggests the undulating profile of a Finnish lake. Aalto’s vase continues to win awards, has residency in famous museums, and is recognized and appreciated worldwide.

Aalto Flaming Red Vase

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Since its introduction in 1937 at the Parisian World Fair in Paris, the Aalto vase has been a celebrated icon of design. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, each piece echoes the untamed shorelines of Finland's thousands of lakes. The fluid lines are emblematic of the deep connection between man and nature and utterly striking to behold.
I have it on display in the front room on my coffee table.

The Christmas Vase for All Seasons
February 6, 2014
I bought this vase specifically for the Christmas season because of the deep red color. Not only did this vase look wonderful with simple greens but also floral arrangements as well. I think I will use this vase throughout the year as the deep red color is a wonderful "base" for flower arrangements.
  • The red is a great means to disguise the stems of flowers in the can't see them but can in to the lighter colors.
  • This color might not be appropriate for summer flower arrangements.
